Add webapp mode for Tika Server, simplifies deployment
------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TIKA-894
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-894
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: packaging
    Affects Versions: 1.1, 1.2
            Reporter: Chris Wilson


For use in production services, Tika Server should really be deployed as a WAR file, under
a reliable servlet container that knows how to run as a system service, for example Tomcat
or JBoss.

This is especially important on Windows, where I wasted an entire day trying to make TikaServerCli
run as some kind of a service. 

Maven makes building a webapp pretty trivial. With the attached patch applied, "mvn war:war"
should work. It seems to run fine in Tomcat, which makes Windows deployment much simpler.
Just install Tomcat and drop the WAR file into tomcat's webapps directory and you're away.
